The Clothing Show - Las Valentias

I only discovered the Clothing Show last spring. I had always known about it, it's been around forever. It used to be the Old Clothing Show and Sale featuring almost exclusively vintage and second hand items, over the years has morphed into a great place for local designers to show their stuff. There is still an amazing offering of Vintage goods but now there are more jewellers and local designers than ever before.

One of those local designers is Las Valentias. Their stuff is amazing! They use fabrics that are light with allot of movement. They offer pieces that are great for layering, so you can wear them all year round. There is a real classic feel, yet trendy and somehow nostalgic, it's hard to explain. All I know is I bought one of their tunics to wear over leggings for our photo shoots this week! They have a great sale going on! This dress is the Etta, it's on sale for $124.99, can't get much better than that!

I think they should start listing even more of their stuff on 100 mile finds. What do you think?
